A Closer Examination of Bipolar Disorder in School-Age Children
Bardick, Angela D.; Bernes, Kerry B.
Professional School Counseling, v9 n1 p72 Oct 2005
Children who present with severe behavioral concerns may be diagnosed as having other commonly diagnosed childhood disorders, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and/or conduct disorder, among others, when they may be suffering from early-onset bipolar disorder. Awareness of the symptoms of early-onset bipolar disorder may lead to appropriate referrals for assessment and treatment, as well as collaborative program planning for children with bipolar disorder. Implications and recommendations for school counselors are discussed. (Contains 1 resource.)
